most sports are tha same way...from rugby to golf if u arent a superstar athelete your gonna have to grind like a sob...but unlike other sports when an underdogg gets their opportunity i believe the odds of an upset in boxing are better and tha victory is much greater.

@SuperTurbulance no question. if you go to a DVD store just look at the difference between what's avaible from the UFC versus boxing. Look at the shows they put on to support their sport, and expose their big stars. however, I believe that is a function of the fact that the UFC is like a little NFL, it markets the sport because it can get most of the returns. boxing has no body that can earn the returns. top rank and don king and golden boy split this up. less incentive to market

@charlesgoodwin Many UFC fighters earn 5/fight, and fight only 3 times per yr, and the top-end guys make a fraction of what top boxers earn, and generally aren't allowed to make endorsement money without Zuufa's approval. In 2010 only 120 UFC fighters made more than the average salary in the US, (but they also paid out a lot in expenses) while 40 fighters made less than 10k for the yr. Top, average, and low-end boxers will always make more than their UFC counterparts.

@Robstailey Boxing also needs this body to promote the sport as a whole. It's the business model that's used by all the other sports. It doesn't happen in boxing (other than through HBO) because if you invest in promotion and put on big events on free TV to create a following some other promoter will end up reap a lot of the benefit. boxing suffers from the classic free rider problem because of the way it's organized and so it's lack of exposure means a declining fan base.
